Put simply, it describes how Health and Safety will be managed in your business and will let staff and others know about your commitment to maintaining good health and safety management.
Yes, every company needs to have a Health and Safety Policy. If you employ five or more persons then this is legally required to be in a written format. Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) forum members also require a comprehensive policy for any submissions.
Havio have many years of experience in writing Health and Safety policies and designing management systems for our clients across a wide range of industry sectors. When you instruct Havio to complete the production of a new policy, a dedicated consultant will take the time to get to know your business and produce a document that works for you. Alternatively you can instruct us to review your existing Health and Safety Policy which we will only do once getting to know your business and understanding the risks your staff face in their day to day activities.
It is good practice to review your Health and Safety Policy on an annual basis, this means that any staff changes can be reflected and bi-annual legislative updates can be added where appropriate.
